2021 loyalty bonus stamp – deadly nightshade 18.02.2022

Loyalty stamp 2021 - Black Belladonna

While the deadly nightshade plant is extraordinarily beautiful to look at, it is also very dangerous: the black berries might look tempting, but ingesting them can even cause death.

The plant’s Latin name Atropa belladonna is reminiscent of the Greek goddess of fate, Atropos, who cuts people’s “life thread”, which is very fitting for such a poisonous plant. This plant, which is native to Austria, is part of the nightshades family. Its bell-shaped flowers are brownish purple on the outside and yellow on the inside. Its shiny black berries as well as the other parts of the plant contain highly toxic alkaloids.
